Security is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. As a homeowner you will do everything you can to protect your property from burglars. As a parent you’ll do whatever you can to keep your child safe when playing games online. And as a consumer, you will take significant steps to keep your personal details out of reach of cyber criminals.
As a reputable garage door company, security is also paramount to everything we do. That’s why we offer the best garage door security options in the West Midlands.
Our Hörmann sectional security garage doors boast an anti-theft kit attached to them which engages a door latching function when a door is closed. The best part about this is it is purely mechanical and will secure the door even if power is lost. Hörmann’s up and over doors are also designed with security in mind. These garage doors firmly fix the corner of the door leaf to the frame, making them practically impossible to force open.
However, it’s the SWS doors that flex the most muscle as they pack a secured by design accreditation. Secured by design is an industry standard that supports products which have been created to thwart burglars. The accreditation, which has been around since 1989, is even tougher to achieve than those who meet the part Q building regulations.
Part Q building regulations came into effect in 2015, meaning all windows and doors installed in the UK must satisfy new standards of robustness, use approved hardware and demonstrate proven security performance. But Secured by Design works with garage door manufacturers to create high level security standards, responding to trends in crime and has given input on several key standards. The principles of the scheme have been proven to reduce the risk and fear of crime and the installation of secure by design products has been known to pay for itself within two years.
